Dates and times

Sunday 22 March 2020
1:00PM - 3:00PM

Chris travelled across Spain last year, repeating a (failed!) trip when he was 16, following the footsteps of earlier writer/travellers, Gerald Brenan in 1919, Laurie Lee 1935/6, and others.  Chris is now writing a book - Everything Passes and Everything Stays (Journeys through Spain, Song and Memory).  A session about remembering (and mis-remembering). How we form narratives of our lives. We'll discuss how to record the moment and how to write it, with extracts from British and Spanish authors, and song lyrics from Machado's 'Cantares' to 'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep'!
